When will you be able to build an architectural drawing board?
An architect will soon be able use a drawing board in the design of a building, according to a new technology developed by researchers at MIT.
The project, called architectural drafting , is an application of a new type of technology to design a building.
It was first proposed by MIT’s Daniel S. Vahrad in 2007.
The new tool, called the Embedded Drawing Board , is similar to a computerized drawing tool, and it uses light sensors to make accurate drawings of buildings.
It’s also designed to be portable, and be used by architects to design and build buildings.
“It’s an extremely powerful tool,” said Daniel Vahran, an assistant professor in the department of architecture at MIT who led the study.
“You can build an entire house out of it.”
The team at MIT, including Vahrang and fellow professor Michael F. Crespo, worked to build the technology.
“We had to get this idea out in the open and then to get it to scale,” Vahrrad said.
In designing a building with a large space, for example, a building could need to be able a large amount of floors to be made accessible to people.
To do that, the researchers used a large number of sensors, which tracked people walking through a building to see how they moved around.
“The problem is we didn’t really know where the floor was,” Vahnar said.
“The only way to find out is to walk around the building and ask people to step on the floor.”
The result was that the team was able to predict what people were doing in the space by using their movements.
“It’s like if you go out and you walk up the street and you notice people are talking on their phones or looking around,” Vuhran said.
“What’s the most useful information you could gather by just asking people to walk down a corridor or into the corner?”
“To actually design the building, you need a large set of sensors to know where they are.
So you’ve got to find a way to combine that with a drawing.”
Using the sensor data, the team created a computer program that could be used to make an accurate drawing of the building.
“Using the data, we can actually predict where people will be walking down the corridor or if they’re going to be moving around a certain part of the room,” Vichran said, adding that the tool could be useful for designing large-scale buildings with complex layouts and complex spaces.
The researchers hope that the technology will allow architects to better design buildings, and make them more accessible for the people who live there.
“In our field, architects have been using this technology for decades,” Vihrad said, “but it’s still very new.”
